The Intercollegiate Transport Studies MSc, offered in conjunction with Imperial College London, brings together the transport research and training capabilities of the Civil Engineering Departments of the two universities. Students benefit from the multi-disciplinary transport expertise of the two departments and their 30 years' experience as leaders in this field.
What will I learn?
Students gain a systematic understanding of the causes, motivations and means of personal travel and goods movement; techniques for analysing and resolving transport problems; and methods of evaluating transport projects, plans and policies, recognising the need for public consultation and the political, social, commercial and financial issues involved.
Why should I study this degree at UCL?
The Centre for Transport Studies is an energetic and exciting environment. Students benefit from outstanding library facilities, including specialised transport reference collections, and from the active involvement of teaching staff in internationally recognised research, and in advice to local, national and international transport agencies.
Both colleges are located in the centre of one of the world's most exciting cities, near to relevant professional institutions and transport agencies. London provides a living laboratory in which students can observe many of the problems that they are studying, and analyse the success or failure of current efforts to deal with them.
